When you need a powerhouse copywriter, you need Laura Belgray. Founder of Talking Shrimp and co-creator of The Copy Cure, she’s been an award-winning writer for nearly 2 decades.

Laura works primarily with TV shows, writing promos, launch campaigns, upfronts, online content, book chapters, and more.

I’d be willing to bet you’ve seen some of her scripts. They’ve been performed by actors like Joan River, Kevin Hart, Spongebob Squarepants, and Kathy Griffin, to name just a few.

On a side note, she also taught Sherman Hemsley, AKA George Jefferson, to moonwalk.

But those kinds of writing chops don’t stay secret for long. After talking about copywriting at Marie Forleo’s first RHH Live event, Laura was asked by several entrepreneurs for help with their copywriting. One thing led to another, and she now offers copywriting in addition to TV promotions.
